"Darkhouse" is the first volume in a 9-volume (plus a few novellas) series published between 2011 and 2014. Right now Audible only has the 1st volume available -- I hope the rest are on their way!
Perry Palomino and Dex Foray are brought together by fate to a haunted lighthouse owned by Perry's uncle. They decide to work together to produce a ghost-hunters type show for an internet channel.
The book is a mixture of light horror with a touch of romance. Through the first volume Perry and Dex are virtual strangers -- drawn together but knowing very little of each other. They're not sure of each other, of any sort of relationship they might have, and whether they can trust each other. This unknown quality certainly adds to the suspense. But no matter how they feel, they must end up trusting each other to survive.
Their relationship is further complicated by Dex's off-screen Barbie-plastic "perfect" girlfriend, Jennifer. What will happen with Jennifer in the future?
The first volume essentially introduces us to the characters and then sets up the structure for subsequent books. It also sets up the strong chemistry between Perry and Dex, which I expect will build as we get to know them and they get to know each other. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who enjoys the Urban Fantasy/Romance genre mash-up.
And now, okay Audible.... I'm ready for the next one!

Once I got past Perry's insecurities and immaturity I really enjoyed the story. The narrator does a good job of bringing the characters to life. The story moves a bit slow sometimes which only magnifies Perry's awkwardness but for the most part it's a good story and I look forward to the next book.
